According to a report from Bloomberg, the entrepreneur was arrested today (December 17) on securities fraud charges.
The website reports that prosecutors charged Shkreli with “illegally taking stock from Retrophin Inc., a biotechnology firm he started in 2011, and using it to pay off debts from unrelated business dealings.”
Additionally, the CEO is said to have “made secret payoffs and set up sham consulting arrangements.”
A press conference is currently scheduled for later today.
“I bought the most expensive album in the history of mankind and fucking RZA is talking shit behind my back and online in plain sight,” Shkreli said while speaking with HipHopDX. “I’m just getting pissed off. That’s not the way I do business. If I hand you $2 million, fucking show me some respect. At least have the decency to say nothing or ‘no comment.’ The guy says ‘…before his business practices came to light.’ What the fuck does that mean? I fucking make money. That’s what I do. That’s why I can fucking afford a fucking $2 million album.”
